Why Waqf is not Endowment ( Differentiation)

There are 2 types of Waqf:

       i.          General Waqf

General Waqf which is refers to an asset given by a donor (Al-Waqif) without any specific objectives on how it should be used. The asset can be freely managed by a Mutawalli (sole trustee) in accordance with syariah.


     ii.          Specific waqf,

Specific Waqf with specific objective how it should be used based on agreement or trust deeds. The asset must be managed by a Mutawalli which is Majlis Agama Negeri, in accordance to the specific objectives of the donor and syariah.

Hence, we focused on Specific Waqf which is the beneficiary only for students development and good insfrustructure and provided in the University.

In UniMAP, there is Waqf purposely for Mosque and Complex of the Islamic Centre, Student Apartment, Student Endowment Fund, Academic Waqf Fund and Student Entrepreneurship Funds.
